Synopsis

Set against the backdrop of 1830s Singapore where piracy, crime, triads, and tigers are commonplace, this historical romance follows the struggle of two lovers: Zhen, a Chinese coolie and triad member, and Charlotte, an 18-year-old Scots woman and sister of Singapore's Head of Police. Two cultures bound together by the invisible threads of fate yet separated by cultural diversity.

Singapore in the flesh.
December 5th, 2014
Short of stepping into a time machine, nothing could bring to life the atmosphere of 19th century Singapore with the clarity and sensibility of Dawn Farnhams writing. Some of the poetry feels a bit intrusive but the story, the characters and the imagery are fascinating.
